From their millions sold to their outspoken front-man whos saviour complex has even attracted a petition against him, the bands unquestionable success has led to its share of arrogance in interviews. Now, long-time producer Daniel Lanois is joining in on the fun. When talking about U2s upcoming album No Line On The Horizon with The Boston Herald, Lanois said, "The president of the company is singing better than ever and the tracks are wildly innovative.
